The City is seeking representatives to sit on a Community Resource Group (CRG) for the L’Amoreaux Kidstown Water Park Redesign and Replacement. Apply online.

Kidstown Water Park is one of Scarborough’s most popular outdoor water facilities for preschool and grade school children. The City is planning to update the existing equipment through state-of-good-repair improvements to provide a safer and more accessible experience for park users.

Project Timeline

  • Summer 2020 to Winter 2021: Design and public consultation phase
  • Winter 2021 to Spring 2021: Construction procurement phase
  • Summer 2021 to Summer 2022: Construction phase

The timeline is subject to change.

L’Amoreaux Kidstown is the City’s only owned and operated waterpark. It is the most popular outdoor aquatic facility in the City, enjoyed by kids and families from all across Toronto. It has come time to replace this iconic destination and revitalize its surroundings to ensure the water park is in good working order for many summers to come. The redesigned water park will be a dynamic, accessible, safe, and exciting space that will better serve existing and new park users.

The project will include the following:

  • Redesign and replacement of the water park/splash pad
  • Expanded parking and queueing areas
  • New and improved changing facilities and washrooms
  • Enhanced spaces for permit use
  • Shade structure(s)

The City will be leading this project and has procured a local firm, PMA Landscape Architects, to act as the primary consultant undertaking the design and construction administration.

Community Resource Group

  • Those who work with or care for children and youth
